[texts]The Language Space - Inger Bierschenk
The theoretical assumption put forward in the present paper is that text is a natural phenomenon, whose development is governed by inner dynamics, as regular as regards any living system. This dynamics becomes acces­sible through the language mechanism. Through language an individual forms his inner mental space into a textual representation. On the surface, because of writing conventions, the text is linearly pro­gressing...

[texts]The Information in the Folds of the Complex Adaptive Landscapes of a Verbal Expression - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article is advancing the bio-kinematic and demonstrates that the discovered mechanism can capture emergent "AaO" units and track their growth in complexity. It is demonstrated that the textual morphogenesis is generating corresponding informational invariants. On the basis of the translation function, it is made evident that the sequential textual translation of English to Swedish and Swedish to Italian is producing the condition for an effective control of the AaO's within a system of lang...

[texts]An Information Processing Experiment - Inger Bierschenk
This experiment starts with the assumption that the struc­ture and representation of scientific information should correspond to the cognitive structure assumed to exist in both user and producer of information. The model of in­vestigation of cognitive representation is based on overt manifestations of concepts and conceptual relations as they emerge in the abstract language of titles of scienti­fic documents...

[texts]Analisi Geometrica di Testo: Manuale per il PTA /Vertex - Inger Bierschenk & Bernhard Bierschenk
The essence of the present work is based on the Kantian(AaO)-axiom. As a scientific method in its true sense, the Vertex version of Perspective Text Analysis (PTA) represents an alternative approach to text-based studies. The inter-lingual character of Vertex has been tested and established in the context of six different languages, four belonging to the German family and two to the Roman family. The actual presentation concerns the Italian version...

[texts]The Discontinuity of Human Existence: Part III. Perspective Text Analysis. A Methodological Approach to the Study of Competence - Ole Elstrup Rasmussen
This is the last article in a series of three, the objective of which is to describe the fundamental discontinuities of human existence. In the first article: The fundamental concepts of human existence and the relation between the singular and the super-singular, it is shown, among other things, that a number of classic theories have three fundamental concepts of development in common: canalization that encompasses transference of something from one another, correlation that encompasses recipro...

[texts]A theoretical basis for estimating quality of life - Bernhard Bierschenk
The purpose of constructing measures of the concepts (1) quality of life and (2) dignity was to assess the possibility of self-actualisation and the constraints on life within each of three simulated social organisations. The potential predictors of the first experiment were derived by a factor analytic study of 51 statements based on N = 271 subjects. The extracted scales are (1) adaptability-security, (2) freedom of action, and (3) physical existence...

[texts]Cycles and Oscillations in Text Processing - Bernhard Bierschenk
The classical research operations in the cognitive sciences concern categorisations as well as classifications, which strongly have been influenced by nomological approaches. As a consequence, information processing has been explained with reference to syntactic-semantic models. Because of an absence of structural implications, personal interpretations have had great impact on the presentation of results of relevance to the cognitive sciences...

[texts]Behavioural Semantics: A Comparison between Topologic and Algebraic Scaling in the Measurement of Human Dignity - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article is concerned primarily with the problem of measuring quality and/or quantity of psychological phenomena. Its purpose is to identify and examine the critical problem of qualifying a syntactic correct indicative statement. The exposition is based on the premise that both humanistic and behaviouristic oriented psychologists have agreed upon the necessity of the analytical proposition as foundation of all scientific inquiry...

[texts]The Tacitness of Tacitus - Bernhard Bierschenk
In the present study, emphasis is put on two kinds of measurement. One concerns the analysis of verbal flows by means of Volume-Elasticity measures. The other is directed toward the analysis of information flow structures and their representation in the form of a Metaphysical Cube. Because information transaction cannot be studied without an emphasis on the text producer's text building behaviour, his intended and oriented schematising as unitising activity has been focused upon...

[texts]Lärarbeteenden och elevreaktioner: Beskrivning och utprövning av två i beteendevetenskapliga teorier förankrade simulatorer - Gunlög Frost
This report presents two simulators anchored to behavioural theories and based on the interaction between teacher behaviours and video-recorded pupil reactions. The purpose is to see whether student teachers use strategies when choosing a course of action and whether they then follow these strategies flexibly or in a stereotyped way. In order to check the way in which student teachers work with the simulators, the student teachers and the simulators were recorded simultaneously and this video­...

[texts]Fundamentals of Perspective Text Analysis (Substantially Revised Edition). - Bernhard Bierschenk
The major assumption made is that language as a natural system is both self-organising and self-referential. Compared to common syntactic-semantic approaches, the present approach is ecological and builds on the unambiguous identification of textual agents and agencies together with their objectives. Because information transaction cannot be studied without an emphasis on the text producer’s text building behaviour, his intended and oriented schematising as unitizing activity has been focused ...

[texts]Conceptions of Cognitive Functions in a Science of Knowing - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article presents a critical discussion of the use of the notion "frame", especially by computer scientists, as a theoretical construct to describe the cognitive representation of information. It is argued that an adequate description of "knowledge" requires the utilization of the notion "schema" as the theoretical construct. Based on this discussion, the construction of abstract cognitive models is proposed...

[texts]An Ecological Approach to the Processing of Symbolic Information - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article attempts to prove that an adequate cognition oriented approach to the processing of symbolic information abstracted from verbal expressions must consider a running text instead of scattered sentences. It is argued that the dominant cognition models do not give due consideration to the fact that a valid abstraction of in-formation structures has to be based on an explicit encoding of intentionality and valuation...

[texts]An Empirically Generated Thesaurus: Truncated Registers - Inger Bierschenk
Truncated registers (completed in 1979) have been automatically generated from titles of the scientific documents (ca 1000) that were produced by 40 randomly selected researchers at educational institutions in Sweden during the period 1937-1977. The registers have been compiled from Swedish text materials. A main characteristic of this empirically generated thesaurus is the Problem-Method-Goal model assumed to be basic for an information searcher (user) as well as for the information producer...

[texts]The Schema Concept: Bartlett till Now - Nicoletta Caramelli
When in 1932 Bartlett first used the concept of âschemaâ borrowing it from Head, he intended to suggest a unitary structure whose elements interacted in a complex way. This structure, which aimed to insure the continuity of the cognising organism, was at the same time the expression of the functional principle responsible for the mutual interdependence between an organism, the human being, and its environment...

[texts]Perceptual, Evaluative and Behavioural Changes through Externally Mediated Self-confrontation - Bernhard Bierschenk
This report describes the development and application of the idea of microteaching in research and education. It presents a cybernetic model for a systematic and controlled study of the way in which the individual makes use of different feedback devices for self-control and self-direction. The model is applied in an examination of an extremely comprehensive collection of research literature. The result of the investigation is studied with regard to its significance for a person's ability to make...

[texts]Den dolda storheten i Dvärgen - Inger Bierschenk
This study concerns The Dwarf (Dvärgen) by Pär Lagerkvist. The author wanted to give his tribute to the Renaissance masters by letting the dwarf express his scorn and contempt for humanism. Further, Lagerkvist wanted to characterize the greatness and lowness of Man through the prince and his innate dwarf. It is a general conception that the prince character in this novel has retrieved properties from Machiavelli’s Prince...

[texts]Conceived Limits for Manipulated Reproduction - Inger Bierschenk
This article is focusing on the notion that the design of a civilization is perceivable to its citizens only to the degree that they have the cognitive instruments to judge it properly. With the purpose to clarify how two Swedish female adolescents comprehend the information structure of a utopian society, their written responses to Huxley’s Brave New World are studied. The method used for the analysis is Perspective Text Analysis (PTA/Vertex), which is founded on the Agent-action-Objective (A...

[texts]Intended Predication - Inger Bierschenk
The basic argument of this article is that the predicate, in its profane sense, has a realistic ground. A discussion of realism in language analysis is made on the basis of a reconstruction of the paradigmatic functions intended in the Objective component. By introducing the Subject component as the governing factor for analysing predications, the author schematically demonstrates the "ecologically significant" double binding between the objects of the predicate.

[texts]Sustainability of Authenticity - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk
Today, design is the concept of fashion. This article is focusing on the notion that there is one ideal design of society. The search for ideal solutions of societal problems has been the habit of utopianism. With the purpose to clarify how a student understands prescription and the design of a perfect society, a discourse on Huxley's "Brave New World" is studied. This implies that the student as text producer is expected to communicate a particular intention and orientation, since certain viewp...

[texts]The Ideology of Pure Form - Inger Bierschenk
Ever since Chomsky published his work on the syntactic structures, linguists, AI-researchers, philosophers and psychologists have been obsessed with trying to prove the relevance of the formalism that his work advocates. The Chomskyan tradition assumes that the automaton represents the highest form of knowledge, and that, therefore, knowledge of language exists only as propositions. In the later works of Chomsky, the X-bar theory, especially its minimalist version, is proposed to be a purified d...

The focus of the presentation is on the individual’s comprehension of “citizenship”. Study and analysis of citizenship concerns a person’s co-operative interaction with various physical and social surroundings as well as the cognitive integration of these surroundings. A person can achieve this integration through development of his abilities of judgement.

It follows that their common causal determination can be treated as the efficient definition of adaptation and consequently translational f...

Consciousness, in the beginning of its scientific use, was considered to be material, i.e., to represent an attribute of substance or matter. During later periods, it was associated with learning processes. Based on questionnaires and interviews, a number of different definitions have made its learned content dependent on statistical measures of what people consciously know. However, statically and without a proper time-scale, it is impossible to identify causal links to the biological mechanism...
